A Very Ordinary Citizen
aka Yek Shahrvand-e Kamelan Maamouli First screened in October 2015
Director: Majid Barzegar. Cast: Souren Mnatsakanian, Shadi Karamroudi, Nahid Hadadi. Screenplay: Majid Barzegar and Jafar Panahi. Twitter Capsule:
Co-written by Jafar Panahi, a unique melange of contemporary realism, sad comedy, and heightened surprise.
Unusual approach to senility, centered neither on pathos nor pathology. Style not quite interesting in itself, but shifts in tone, story, and register keep you guessing.
